Quarterbacks, as you might have predicted, are a popular topic in this week’s Bills Mailbag. Here, for example, are four questions generated after Buffalo’s 19-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The mailbag is loaded this week with questions about the offensive line, tight end Charles Clay, the Sabres' big trade ... and even my slow-pitch softball team that is an absolute juggernaut.
